FCS is a quarterly subscription box that gives you samples of some really fun and unique bath products.  This summer they have such a fun box that is themed after the ever popular Candyland game.

“Lick Your Lips” Fortune Cookie Soap – These are FCS’s signature products and I love them. This one smells and looks just like Chocolate Chip Mint Ice Cream, yum.
“Rock Your Socks Off” Solid Sugar Scrub – This scrub smells just like grape soda.

 “Captain’s Berried Booty”Whipped Cream – This smells exactly like Captain Crunch and Berry cereal.   I love, love, love the FCS Whipped Creams they are my absolute favorite.
“Sweet Dreamsicle” Wax Tart – This citrusy, vanilla, and pineapple is the perfect scent to fill your home during those warm summer nights.

“Lemon Drop It Like It’s Hot” Microdermabrasion Facial Scrub – This is FCS’s newest skincare product!   It has a lemon, orange zest scent.

“Lollipop Your Cherry” OCS Hand Sanitizer – I love FCS hand sanitizers, they are my favorite.  This is a cherry, vanilla sweet smell and I can’t wait to use it.  It smells so yummy.

“The Sweet Spot” Sparkle Me – This body spray mist has a shimmer to it that leaves a bit of a sparkle on your skin. The fruity scent is a combination of melon, strawberries, peaches, oranges, and pineapple.  Smells so sweet!

Project 365 Day 25- My Pal Vera

We went to the Outlets today, and I had to stop at my favorite store Vera Bradley.  OMG I got a bag and a wallet for $38, so exciting and I love me a bargain.

Me Time, Homey Stuff

So I am trying really hard to make time for myself lately, because I have noticed the less time allow myself the more horrible I start to feel, the more tired and old I feel.

I also bought myself a few things, even if was only because all my favorite places to shop were having sales.  I  bought myself some new skincare items.  I purchased some Origins face wash, toner and moisturizer.  I have read great things about Origins and thought I would give it a try.  So far so good, I am really liking it.

Then I got some stuff from Bath and Body Works.  They too were having an awesome sale.  Some candles in yummy fall scents.

                                            A cute owl plug in with fall scent bulbs. Can you tell I love fall?

I am also trying to decorate our home to make it beautiful and homey.  I started today by creating a central location for my kids’ schedules and bags. So I did this with a little help from my hubby.
This is the first time I feel at home in a place that we have lived.


So the haircut never happened and I so desperately need one, instead I spent the entire weekend sick, fan-freaking-tastic.  Anyway I belong to this seasonal subscription box called, Fortune Cookie Soap and I love them.  This morning I used one of their Sugar Scrubs and Whipped Creams and OMG I am in love.  I will be placing an order soon.

I just thought I would share something I do for myself and it is getting this little subscription box in the mail.  It is something that is just for me and I look forward to it.  I get so excited to open it up when it’s in my mailbox.  So if you have not tried Fortune Cookie Soap yet, you must.  I am not being paid nor am I affiliated with Fortune Cookie Soap, I just really love them and think you will too.
